Game drawn
28 May 19 UTC Spring, 1: carthage doesnt
28 May 19 UTC Spring, 1: Good point
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1: I decline to comment
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1: There may be a need for an elephant invasion however
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1: Guys ready your orders, looking at you rome and egypt
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: I would like to say:


Rome messed up big time
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: send the elephants through the alps
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: Elephants will be ordered to the alps
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: It's funny seeing how directly people will lie to you
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: Me: keep tarraco free of units?
Rome: of course
Rome: *moves to tarraco*
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: Roman Honor has been thrown away it seems
31 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2: I assure you, my Greek friend, that Roman honour is very much alive and well. In fact, the very words "Carthago Delenda Est" overflow with proud Roman honour by expressing the betterment of the Empire through the destruction of Roman enemies.
02 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: It is funny that rome has its little spain campaign, as if it is not 2 units v 2 units?
03 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: I always love to see my enemies making destroys as a result of getting attacked from the back, and those counterattackers making builds.
03 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: I will admit that was an excellent play on Greece and Carthage's part. Big oof for me though
03 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: Also I love my little Spain campaign <3 Seems it was actually 2v1 instead of 2v2 like you said
03 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: nah b you're getting your buttcheeks clapped
03 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: Interesting to see whether egypt chooses to get his buttcheeks clapped by persia or to keep two at each front
03 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 3: Idk by the sounds of it, it looks like Egypt's making you a bit hot under the collar :3
04 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 4: GameMaster: aaalex was banned: Multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.

13 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 5: I am new to the game.
13 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 5: Hi Rome! :)
13 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 5: Hi Rome! :)
13 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 5: Hi Rome! :)
13 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 5: If everyone doesn't go against persia now he will solo
13 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 5: Hi Carthage! :)
14 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 6: I have just realized. Only Egypt who is not a replacement.
14 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 6: That alone is reason to alow the Pharoah to live
14 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 6: Good point.
15 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 6: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
17 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 6: I would allow, but you have never answered.

26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 9: I have just realized, my elephants are in the Alps. :)
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 9: Carthage sends elephants through the Alps to support a massive military campaign against a powerful enemy. Now where have we heard that one before?
26 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 9: And Anthony Hopkins is in my army. ;-)
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 10: Why did we just skip the build turn?
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 10: You don't get a build because in this variant you can only build in your home cities. It through me off also when I joined this game.
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 10: OK, thanks a lot.
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 10: No worries, it looks like you are on your way to a homecoming soon anyway.
02 Jul 19 UTC Carthage, I have asked you numerous times to draw and you keep refusing. Before we engage in a protracted war, are you still unwilling to draw?
04 Jul 19 UTC Seeing as I had given up on this game, I see this as an absolute win. GG everyone.
